Sherie was born in England, with a Jamaican and Indian background and partially raised in Louisiana until she was 14 and moved to Califonia at the age of 15 due to her father starting a health care start up in Silicon Valley. She has grown up with a strong background of entrepreneurship in her family, little did she know the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Sherie grew up with a love and passion for all things beauty and fashion related. After graduating high school, she went to college, but in her heart she knew this was to please her parents, in her heart she knew this wasn't for her. A couple years after struggling with school, Sherie confided in her parents about her desire to attend beauty school. Her parents had strong beliefs about her attending college, they were unsure about her decision to leave college and attend beauty school. Sherie had a lot to prove, but in 2009 she enrolled in the fall cosmetology program at Paul Mitchell The School East Bay. It was the best decision she had ever made, and a first step into a career she would hold close to her heart for a lifetime.
In 2011 Sherie graduated Paul Mitchell and received her diploma and cosmetology license. From there she entered the world with interest to be a hairstylist. She assisted at a few salons, before she learned hair just wasn't her jam. In 2012 she took on a makeup artist job and fell in love with doing makeup. Shortly after, she also started working at an eyelash bar where she learned to do lashes. In the beginning she said, "I don't think this is for me" doing eyelashes took patience, structure, and attention to detail, it was soon after much practice, she would realize those were her biggest strengths. Sherie fell in love with lashing, and sought out to enhance her knowledge and skill and attended a volume lash certification in New York in 2014. She studied the art of Russian volume lash techniques, brow extensions, and received certifications.
Sherie also went on to co-own 2 salons with her mother in Califormia for 3 years where she did it all, managing, teaching, working as a lash, makeup, and hair artist. Operating both salons at the age of 25, she often heard "you're so young" but she didn't let that stop her from pursuing her dreams. This was one of her greatest accomplishments with a number of important lessons learnt. She then broke away to do a solo business in 2017 and that's when Beauty Deigned by Sherie Kumar was born in San Jose, CA. Starting her very own business was another major milestone and accomplishment for her. From there she furthered her education and learned the art of microblading and sugaring, where she also received certifications and has mastered those skills to add to her love for the beauty industry. " I love my clients, I've been blessed with the greatest clients" she says.
Sherie considers herself a Master Artist, with lots of knowledge and skills to offer. She prides herself on not just creating a personable experience, but showing her passion by educating her clients on the service they are receiving with her. Sherie says "It's important that my guest understand the steps of there so they feel completely comfortable, and the best result is always delivered. my guest experience with me is my number one priority, my passion and love for what i do is my second.
